HNBA LATINA COMMISSION PRIMERA ABOGADA AWARD

With the creation of the Latina Commission in 2008, the Commission developed an annual award, now known as the “Primera Abogada” Award, to recognize and honor trailblazing Latina lawyers, affectionately known as Primeras, for their unique and lifetime contributions to the legal profession. This award is given annually to a Latina lawyer trailblazer who, licensed for 30 years or more, has achieved great distinction by opening up opportunities historically closed to Latinas.  The award will be presented during the Latina Commission luncheon held during the 2017 HNBA Annual Convention.  

The deadline for nominations has been extended- July 19, 2017.
